Reader submitted ideas for DIY weapons, home protection

Unusual survival resources and DIY Weapons from the Poor Man archives…

 

   One of our readers suggested including a pencil sharpener in your bug-out bag to sharpen sticks with.  Sounds dumb to me unless it is chop sticks you need to sharpen.  I prefer a variety of knives and a machete which can be used for many, many tasks.

 

Others have told me they take old metal files and convert them into knives.  Not a bad idea but time consuming, even with a bench grinder.

 

As I’ve mentioned in several posts over the years, the main idea behind home and personal security is to keep a low profile.  Refrain from driving that new Porsche or Mercedes and don’t brag to others how well prepared you are or about how many guns you have (that was the primary reason why I turned down the ‘opportunity’ to appear on NatGeo TV’s Extreme Preppers.

 

Since we plan to be completely off-grid by summers’ end this year, I’m already concerned about disguising our solar and wind turbine system.  If the SHTF, the bad guys will look for self sufficient homes to rob.

 

As a kid we made a ton of smoke bombs using sugar and salt peter…lots of fun but some of my neighbors were not as amused and called the fire department on us once.

 

I know some of you are concerned about the possibility of accidentally setting off your smoke alarm or igniting the mixture during preparation. There is safer way to make a smoke bomb. It uses the same ingredients and produces a comparable amount of smoke, but it takes a bit longer to make. Here's how to make the safer smoke bomb:
